Student Video: Moonwalking on the Sun



Teacher Dan Parker from Toronto, Ontario posted a class video called "Moonwalking on the Sun" about the challenges of being present in the classroom when your mind is moonwalking on the sun (with a hat tip tribute to Michael Jackson.) (Dan posted this on my Facebook page which is a place I go where people share things and I learn a lot.)

Some cool creativity here. So, the video isn't perfect "theorectically" for lots of educators whatever and some won't care for it, but it grew on me and I liked it. I'm actually singing this song to myself now as I write this.

The thing about is this - I bet their minds weren't moonwalking as they made this video. They look like they spent a ton of time on this AND ENJOYED IT. Do things the students enjoy. Bring them IN to the classroom.
